#1. Check the local weather.
If it’s hot outside your food may cook a little faster and if it’s cold or raining outside your grill will need a lot more attention to keep it up to temperature.
#2. Bring a meat thermometer.
It will help eliminate overcooked, dry meat and sour stomachs. Chicken should reach an internal temp of 165°F and pork, 145°F.
#3. Bring along some extra marinade.
like Stubb’s Pork Marinade or Green Chile Marinade. They are both great for adding to sour cream to make a dip for chips.
#4. Know your area.
Make sure you know the rules of the facility you’re tailgating in and get there early enough (3 to 4 hours in advance) to secure a prime spot to set up.
#5. Stay fire safe
Bring along a small galvanized trash can with a lid for your used coals. (15 lb. capacity)
